What were the college experiences you chose and how are they connected to your values?

HD 205, Fall 2019 Stretch Application 6

Part 1—The Stretch:

Identify Experiences You Want to Create: Spend some time thinking about what you would like to experience in your remaining time at WSU. This could be something related to your future major, future experiences (i.e. study abroad, become an RA, something related to Greek Life, etc.), future job or internship opportunities, anything. Make a list of at least 3 experiences you would like to consciously work toward.

Action Plan: Based on the list you created above, pick one goal you have for yourself for your college experience. With that goal in mind, fill out the Action Plan posted on Blackboard. Be sure to break down your goal into immediate, short term, medium term and long term steps. Submit your action plan along with your reflection.

Immediate Implementation: Choose one of the immediate goals from your action plan and complete it. Remember that immediate goals are something you can complete within 24-48 hours.

Part 2 – Stretch Reflection: After engaging in any stretch, it is important to reflect on the experience to assess its impact and increase personal awareness. Please reflect on the questions below and answer each of the following prompts. A recommendation is that the total length of all three responses should be approximately 500 – 600 words in length.

Prompts:

1. What were the college experiences you chose and how are they connected to your values?

2. Using the text and/or in class material as a reference, explain committed action (be sure to include citations). Then describe what it was like for you to take committed action by completing the immediate goal? What barriers or obstacles did you have to overcome?

3. How might this practice in making and following through on action plans support you in the future? Why might this be important for living a values-based life?
